Which underwater camera?

11 January 2010 - 10:51 AM


In about one month i'm heading to cape verde. I'm planning to go snorkling and scuba diving (isn't sure yet) (and of course photographing birds!) I like to take pictures underwater. I've snorkeld many times and dived a few times and i have seen many beautiful things i like to take a photo of. But i can't decide wich camera to buy. I have a budget around the 570 USD (400 euro) and i was looking at the sealife dc800. As a dslr photographer above water I like to go for the highest image quality possible, and it's not just for taking snapshots. I'm also thinking on a second hand canon g9 with canon underwaterhousing. Because with the canon, i'm ensured of good quality and manual settings and raw files. I hope someone can help me out!
